Melbourne Beach in December

I am headed to Melbourne Beach area in December for a vacation and plan to do some fly fishing. While I have surf fished the ocean side before, I have never made into the lagoons and rivers. Has anyone ever fished these areas. Did you wade fish or take a charter? I plan to wade fish so I'm looking for access areas, but would be interested in a charter if you had a great experience.

Thanks in advance

Do you mean Melbourne, FL?

If so, my wife's family has a place down in Fort Pierce a little south of there on Hutchinson Island. We usually go down for a few days either over Thanksgiving or Christmas. I find that there is a lot of public beach access along both the Indian River and the Atlantic. I will either get up really early and walk the beach looking for fish breaking or birds, or if it is windy I will head down to the salt water/brackish lagoons. I will pick-up Jacks, Pompano, and Snook (sometimes ladyfish in the lagoons) on small bait fish and shrimp patterns.
